Confused about sending money abroad? Not for long! We've put together this guide on everything you need to know about making international money transfers with Revolut.

How much does it cost to send money abroad with Revolut?

If you’re sending euros to a SEPA (that’s Single Euro Payments Area) country, there are no transfer fees. For example, sending EUR to Poland or EUR to France.

For all other transfers made in the local currency (eg. sending PLN to Poland from the UK), we charge a fixed percentage fee of 0.3%, pegged to a minimum of £0.30 and a maximum of £5.

For transfers not in the local currency (eg. sending USD to Poland from the UK), we charge a flat fee of £3 when sending USD, GBP, EUR or CHF, or a flat fee of £5 for all other currencies.

Need more? Upgrade to Revolut Premium or Metal and you'll get 1 and 3 free international transfers per month, respectively.

We’re about to launch a payment widget where you can check how much your transfer will cost before you send it. Handy, right? Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement, it’s coming soon! You can also read more about our fees here.

How long will it take for my transfer to arrive?

Revolut’s money transfers are fast. Most of our transfers arrive within the day. Depending on the route, it can sometimes take up to 3 to 5 days, but we’ll keep you updated on the status of your transfer either way.

In fact, we’ve just launched a transfer tracker that lets you track where your money is and how long it will take to get there. Check it out when you make your next transfer in the Revolut app!
